WE WELCOME BARTERS
Around here skills and products we don’t produce ourselves are just as valuable as money (if not more!). So, if you’re interested in taking a course but your budget is tight and you have a service or product to offer, please don’t hesitate to propose a barter. If we can balance a full or partial trade, we’ll all be smiling in the end.

This full day workshop offers participants the chance to learn the basic principles and techniques of wet felting, discover the unique properties of wool fibres that allow them to interlock into felted fabric, and learn how to effectively layer fibres and manipulate them into a finished piece of your choice.
Project options include a cowl, a scarf, a wall hanging or a length of fabric. Participants will be able to choose from a wide variety of unique animal fibres and other natural materials to use as surface designs.
